Stuff very lightly (and not all the way to the top), flatten the tops, and attach to body. I sew them on between rows 34 and 35.

Bikini Top
The pattern will be very different depending on what yarn and hook you use as well as stuffing preferences... But I chain to the desired length (make sure it wraps around the doll JUST BARELY. It will grow a little as you crochet into it) and add SC or HDC rows to desired length. I did 4. Then sew it up! Then I use a piece of yarn and connect it to the middle front and tie in the back like an actual swim suit top!

Now you need to add some hair! This post will tell you everything you need to know!
